About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Par 72
Length 6905 yards
Slope 138
Rating 73.9

The 18 semi-private holes at Pine Forest wind through the tall Summerville pines with numerous live oaks, dogwoods and a lake system thrown in for good measure. With an equal balance of straightaways, doglegs and elevation changes, this course is nicely balanced, with challenges and fun in store for golfers of all levels. Rental clubs and electric carts are available.

At 6,905 yards with a 138-slope rating, Pine Forest lives up to its name, as the course has numerous barriers of tall Summerville pines to cause problems for an errant shot. The Bob Spence design also makes use of water to add to the difficulty of some holes. It's a semi-private course, and they've named each hole, with No. 12 being known as "Little Augusta" while No. 15 is "Wastelands."

First Time Playing

It was $30 and made it last minute but I’ve played hundreds of courses all over and these are the worst greens I’ve ever played. They were recently punched but that had nothing to do with it. They literally were dirt and had weeds growing in them. 2 pins were less than 6 feet from fringe and tee boxes were a complete mess. People were super nice but it took 2:45 to play front 9 on a Friday morning and greens were awful. Could be a good layout with nice homes around it but condition was atrocious.

DB

DO NOT PLAY THIS COURSE. Possibly the worst golf experience of my life. Greens have a fungus (see picture) and were un-puttable. The rough had seed heads growing on 10" tall crab grass stalks. Tee boxes are barren and uneven (see picture). It took 3 1/2 hours to play 9 holes. Got a Full refund from Golf Now.

Really good course.

My group and I had a great time on the course.
Really well kept and a beautiful layout.
Lots of long holes which is the only negative point. But who’s really moaning about that. Sets up for satisfying lay ups.
Over all a great course, will be back for sure

Best course for the money

I love this course. Even when wet it drains well. Very rarely do you have cart path only.

The Greens were absolutely horrible. They were like muddy grass. Absolutely a disgrace to the game of golf.

Disappointed

I took two groups to the course today after seeing a 4 star rating on GolfNow. The layout was fine but the tee boxes and more importantly the greens were just trash. I mean hardly any grass at all. Sad as we traveled an hour to play it. The rating must have been fixed by members as it is semi private.

Slowest round ever

Don't know who is setting up the tee times or how many people are on the course at one time, but the pace of play at this golf course is HORRIBLE.

great course to challenge yourself

a few wet spots around from rain BUT the course simply posted 90 degree rule not cart path only. The greens are growing but very playable. The course makes you use most of your clubs. Great day out there. Already booked for tomorrow.

Nice but challenging course

Course was in good shape overall. Fairways are very hard, greens were fast, but a few were burnt and brown. Course requires accurate shots, couple blind water hazards, pay attention to hole overviews. Nice layout, worth the afternoon rate.

Good course

This is a nice course. They do need to update their cart paths and bridges. Cart paths are in bad shape through out the course. Bridges and wooden path ways to a few holes are in need of some TLC bad. All in all the course was good and fun to play.
